The new range of 4K PTZ cameras and its control panel

Canon launches a new system of remote control cameras composed of Pan-Tilt-Zoom CR-N500 and CR-N300 available in black and white and a control panel RC-IP100.

CR-N500 and CR-N300 PTZ cameras

Combining Canon's video and networking technologies in a flexible and convenient solution, the CR-N500 and CR-N300 enable high-quality live productions to be produced and broadcast over IP. Both cameras support multiple protocols such as RTMP/RTMPS, NDI|HX[i], RTP/RTSP and Canon's newly developed XC Protocol, enabling live streaming to a specific broadcast network. To streamline broadcast workflows, the CR-N500 features Canon Log 3 and Wide DR modes to produce the best possible HDR image results for both live broadcast content and recorded footage for post-production editing.

To meet the demand for 4K productions, all of these PTZ cameras incorporate Canon's advanced image acquisition technology that ensures quality equivalent to that delivered by Canon's professional video products. The CR-N500 and CR-N300 are driven by a DIGIC DV6 processor to produce 4K 30P UHD video in 4:2:2 10-bit. The CR-N500 and CR-N300 offer the potential for high-precision control with their pan and tilt movement mechanism that changes the viewing angle in 0.1°/second increments, allowing for great flexibility of movement with variable speed capabilities to record perfect images under any circumstances.
